Nestled within the exclusive streets surrounding Piccadilly Circus sits the delightful French inspired Boulestin. Located perfectly for a pre or post Phantom of The Opera dinner/drinks, one can carry on the Parisian theme of the show! With a very reasonable (and delicious!) theatre menu which consists of two courses for £19.50 or three courses for £24.50, it is possible to make the most out of your theatre trip without breaking the bank. I would personally recommend the Salade d’Endives for cheese lovers like myself, followed by the Confit de Canard (Duck Confit) for those who would like a heartier meal. Desserts are similarly delightful with offerings such as Mousse au Chocolat, a selection of mouth-watering sorbets and a Tarte du Jour.
For the thirsty theatre goers, and by thirsty I mean WINE lovers, Boulestin will NOT disappoint; there are as many wines to choose from as there are foods on the menu! Yes please!
Finally, the restaurant itself is clean and classy, with the option of dining alfresco on a sunny day. Perfect!

Salt n Pepper (0.2 miles)
Situated so ideally for both Her Majesty’s Theatre and the Theatre Royal Haymarket, it would almost be rude not to pay Indian-inspired restaurant Salt n Pepper a visit!
"I personal love a bit of Asian cuisine, but even those who shy away from spice will enjoy this restaurant for its diverse (and VERY tasty) menu.
With dishes to suit all budgets, there is something for everyone. If you are after a quick bite before the theatre, there are great tasting platters for £14 and an Indian style tapas selection of small plates (3 for £12). If you are after a lengthier pre theatre chow down, I would recommend the succulent Butterfly Tiger Prawns to start, or the vegetarian Sabzi Chaat, served in a Poppadom Cup! Mains are equally fabulous; I had the delectable Grilled Salmon Tikka, whilst my friend (who doesn’t eat meat) had the equally tongue tingling Aloo Hara Masala, all washed down with a cracking cocktail from their new cocktail list. Perfect!"
Salt n Pepper has a lovely terrace that you should most definitely take advantage of if you are visiting the theatre on a sunny day.
